About the Book
I read stories to my kids when they were very young, many years ago. By and large, the stories were boring. So I must confess that I wrote the limericks to this book to entertain the adult who reads as well as the child who listens.
A former lawyer now pursuing a career in fine art, I am an expressionist painter trying to capture the spirit of my subject, be it man, animal or place. Since 2008 I have written, illustrated and published ten books of my animal paintings and limericks. Additionally, I have published two books of my landscape paintings, each painting relating to the writings of noted environmentalists, naturalists and poets. The theme of my books is the significance of our natural assets, whether they be forests, lakes, mountains, desert, swamps or the wild animals that inhabit the wilderness.
